# Transform QML Type

Used to perform transforms on meshes. More...

 Import Statement: import Qt3D.Core 2.7 Instantiates: QTransform Inherits: Component3D

## Detailed Description

The Transform component is not shareable between multiple Entity's. The transformation is held as vector3d scale, quaternion rotation and vector3d translation components. The transformations are applied to the mesh in that order. When Transform::matrix property is set, it is decomposed to these transform components and corresponding transform signals are emitted.

Several helper functions are provided to set up the Transform; fromAxisAndAngle and fromAxesAndAngles can be used to set the rotation around specific axes, fromEulerAngles can be used to set the rotation based on euler angles and rotateAround can be used to rotate the object around specific point relative to local origin.

## Property Documentation

 matrix : matrix4x4

Holds the matrix4x4 of the transform.

Note: When the matrix property is set, it is decomposed to translation, rotation and scale components.

 rotation : quaternion

Holds the rotation of the transform as quaternion.

 rotationX : real

Holds the x rotation of the transform as Euler angle.

 rotationY : real

Holds the y rotation of the transform as Euler angle.

 rotationZ : real

Holds the z rotation of the transform as Euler angle.

 scale : real

Holds the uniform scale of the transform. If the scale has been set with scale3D, holds the x value only.

 scale3D : vector3d

Holds the scale of the transform as vector3d.

 translation : vector3d

Holds the translation of the transform as vector3d.
